Do you have a TON of photos on your iPhone and keep getting the "you need to upgrade your iCloud storage" notification all the time? It might be time to actually consider paying that extra fee because Apple will permanently delete some of your photos later this month!

Apple announced that it is shutting down the My Photo Stream album this month, which in case you didn't know stores any pictures taken in the last 30 days so they could be uploaded on your other Apple devices.

My Photo Stream technically stopped uploading your photos on June 26th, but everything in the album will be deleted when the service ends on July 26th. However, any photos that were uploaded to My Photo Stream before June 26 will remain in your iCloud for 30 days from the date of upload and will be available on devices where My Photo Stream is enabled.

To make sure you don't lose any pictures you can go into the My Photo Stream album in your camera roll and save your pictures to your device or to iCloud, which may or may not set you back $1 every month in case you are already out of iCloud storage!
